Learn how the EB-5 Visa Program is being used to help finance infrastructure, support real estate development, and create jobs in Greater Philadelphia. The program helps stimulate the economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors. It establishes a path to permanent residency for up to 10,000 immigrants annually who invest a minimum of $500,000 in an existing or new business in the United States and create or preserve at least ten jobs. This event serves as the quarterly meeting of DVRPC’s Regional Community and Economic Development Forum. There is no cost to attend, but RSVPs are required (RCEDF_RSVP@dvrpc.org).
